Gestures: A Dance of Gestures moving towards intimacy. This piece is based on Desmond Morris’ book, MAN WATCHING.
(This is the "linear" version of Gestures, before we cut the gestures into strips and pulled them randomly out of a bag.)
From the poster:
Friends of the Studio presents The Edge in Frank Moore’s Awake Dreams Free series of live performances supported by a grant from The National Endowment for Arts 7 P.M. Rm. 125 Dwinelle, U.C. Berkeley Thursday – June 26, July 10, July 24, August 7 1986
Awake Dreams are improvised mischievous avant-garde performances which at first appear childishly simple, but which devilishly suck the audience into a surreal and sensual underground where even serious can become silly without taboos to spoil their fun. Each piece is designed to goose your mind and morality … among other things.
Frank Moore is a well-known performance artist who always tries to create a dream reality in which anything is possible.
The Edge is an avant-garde company of actors and artists founded and directed by Frank. The Edge is focused on subversion, on magic, on altering reality … and is not afraid of combining individual arts together.
